T30GC was on 160 again this morning but weaker than yesterday.   They started around 5am our time.

Good luck!

I was happy to see my call in the online log.

VU7RI spotted

VU7RI was spotted on 20 FT8.   They are supposed to be active Oct 10 – 30 according to what I saw some time ago.  I have not heard India or any Asia except some UA9s in quite some time.  This will be a real challenge.  Need on every band except 20.

 

Enjoy chasing T30GC and VP6R.  They are both doing super on 160 and 80.

Re: VU7RI spotted

Ralph Bellas
 

New dates are Oct 19 – 31  Should be a hard one to work on any band.  Great challenge.
